Album Review: Nerina Pallot - 'Year Of The Wolf'

No doubt for some, this will make the guilty pleasure list

Songwriters and solo careers can be a dangerous mix. For every Gaga and Ke$ha, there’s always a Jonathan Wilkes [aka Robbie’s best mate – Failed Solo Careers Ed] lurking in the background. Luckily, for Kylie and Joe McElderry songsmith Nerina, on her third album she’s sticking to what she does best: late ’70s camp.

Producer Bernard Butler has been enlisted to add some louche swoon to the album – most notably on the blissful opener ‘Put Your Hands Up’ and ‘This Will Be Our Year’. Although the former’s finesse isn’t revisited, Nerina seems well placed to give Rumer a run for her money.
